[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v9 06/10] target-mips: Activate IEEE 754-2008 signal

From: Aleksandar Markovic
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v9 06/10] target-mips: Activate IEEE 754-2008 signaling NaN bit meaning for MSA
Date: Fri, 10 Jun 2016 11:57:33 +0200

From: Aleksandar Markovic <address@hidden>

Function msa_reset() is updated so that flag snan_bit_is_one is
properly set to 0.

By applying this patch, a number of incorrect MSA behaviors that
require IEEE 754-2008 compliance will be fixed. Those are behaviors
that (up to the moment of applying this patch) did not get the desired
functionality from SoftFloat library with respect to distinguishing
between quiet and signaling NaN, getting default NaN values (both
quiet and signaling), establishing if a floating point number is NaN
or not, etc.

Two examples:

* FMAX, FMIN will now correctly detect and propagate NaNs.
* FCLASS.D ans FCLASS.S will now correcty detect NaN flavors.
